Prepping for a holiday weekend.....

It will be a quiet one too.  Looking forward to some quiet reflection and maybe some time to do things I've been wanting to do.

I have a few more layouts to share so lets get to it!

Talinn, Estonia

Clean and simple.  I want the detail on the church to stand out.  Papers are from Carta Bella and the flair is from the A Flair for Buttons Etsy shop.  Sets are listed and linked at the bottom of this post.

I used an older Studio Calico kit for this next one.  Been hoarding that paper for a while.  I matched the photo up with the kit while I was packing.  I had no idea what I was going to do but it all came together when I pulled it out of the bag.

 Another clean and simple one.  My son was obsessed with the phone when he was a baby.  I think it was because I was always on it.  My mom and I lived about an hour away from each other and we talked every day, sometimes multiple times a day.  So I was always on the phone.  Like every baby, he tried to put this in his mouth - but he would make little sounds as he did it, like he was trying to talk.

Which leads to this layout.   As he got older, we found a plastic flip phone toy that rang and beeped whenever you pushed the buttons.  Everyone was over for dinner one night and he picked up his little flip phone, dialed someone and then climbed into his kid sized easy chair to have a conversation.  He kept saying 'ya, ya, ya' and when we asked him who he was talking to, he rolled his eyes, got up, shook his head at us and walked upstairs with the phone.  I guess we were interrupting him!

One last one.  (Can you tell those tags were one of my favorite embellishments that weekend!  I kept the pack out and fund a use for at least half of them.

My dad is very handy.  He learned it all from his dad.  My husband, well, he's not so handy.  But his dad was gone a lot and they did things like Boy Scouts instead.  My dad knows how to fix cars and use tools.  He helped his dad build two houses on Long Island.  My son loves to work with Grandpa on special projects like fixing the pull out drawers in the kitchen when they break.  (And it was an excuse to use the "HE" tag.  :))

Flair from the following kits were used on the above layouts. You can purchase them in the AFFB Etsy shop.

ETA:  The shop is closed for a few days while the owner is on vacation.  Here is the link to the shop.  I will post links when the shop re-opens.

  1. Lots of fab pages - that first one is my fave. I'm loving yellow as of late.
